Friday PhD Talks
“Friday PhD Talks” is an activity that intends to gather together PhD students at the Department of English and German Studies in order to share their current research and the concerns they may have during the process of their doctoral theses.
As such, PhD students at different points of development in their projects and from the different fields of study that our Department involves (e.g. film studies, translation, linguistics and literature) will have the opportunity to discuss their research in an informal environment and to get to know what other colleagues are working on.
The objectives of this activity revolve around the integration and dissemination of knowledge from the different research lines that we are all investigating. Ideally, this will boost the networking and the feedback among PhD candidates and will positively affect the predoctoral research that is now being undertaken at our Department.
